Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Emma Elekwa

Seven per­sons were se­ri­ously in­jured while 11 oth­ers came out un­hurt when an 18-seater bus plunged into a gut­ter along Bwari-Dutse road. City News gath­ered that the crash hap­pened on Mon­day around 8.30a.m. at Dut­sen Sokale.

A wit­ness said the fully loaded bus which was char­tered by a group of cho­ris­ters was com­ing from Bwari axis and head­ing to Kubwa when the driver lost con­trol and veered of the road.

The wit­ness who at­trib­uted the crash to brake fail­ure, said the driver tried to con­trol the bus but could not and the ve­hi­cle sud­denly veered into the gut­ter, as a re­sult of which many of the pas­sen­gers sus­tained vary­ing de­grees of in­juries.

Some of the in­jured were rushed to a nearby hospi­tal while oth­ers were taken to Kubwa Gen­eral Hospi­tal for med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

When con­tacted, the head, Ac­ci­dent and Emer­gency unit, Kubwa Gen­eral Hospi­tal, Paul Olise, said two of the vic­tims were trans­ferred to the Na­tional Hospi­tal while the rest have been dis­charged af­ter re­ceiv­ing treat­ment.
